Turning Cooler

We kicked off the Thanksgiving week on a very mild note across western NC. Afternoon temperatures ran a good 10 degrees or so above normal for late-November. A cold front sweeps through tonight sending us back to a cooler weather pattern as we head further into the week. Tuesday is quiet during the day, rain breaks out Tuesday night and continues into Wednesday. Thanksgiving Day looks dry and cool. Check out all the details in our discussion section below.

Forecast Discussion

Turning cooler after a mild start to the Thanksgiving week…

On the weather map, a cold front stretches from New York to Alabama and is just crossing into western NC this evening. The cold front moves all the way through tonight causing the wind to shift out of the NW with cooler air in tow. It won’t be shockingly cold, but noticeably cooler than today.

Tuesday starts quiet, but by Tuesday night the weather turns more interesting. Low pressure is expected to develop off the Southeast coast Tuesday and lift NE along the East Coast through Thanksgiving.

There are still some details to work out, namely, how much cold air can work in as the precip arrives. But, here is our latest thinking as of Monday evening. Rain breaks out Tuesday evening and continues on into Wednesday before tapering off late in the day. At the moment, we are expecting a rain event for most of the NC Foothills. That said, temperatures are expected to be borderline, so we can't rule out the potential of some snow mixing in at times in spots, especially north of Highway 421 (ie. Wilkes and Surry Counties). For now, we are not expecting any accumulations due to temperatures staying above freezing and this is the reason the Snowman-O-Mometer is at "No Chance". But, something to keep a close eye on.

Thanksgiving Day is looking chilly, but with increasing sunshine by the afternoon. Beyond Thursday, we expect dry, cool conditions through Saturday. The next chance of rain comes Sunday.
